Alas, it doesn't work this way.  At the time that (:template defaults ...:)
is read, we haven't built the pagelist yet, so {=$Group} doesn't
have a value yet.  In fact, I don't think it's possible to reliably
use any form of page variable within a (:template default:), at
least not yet.

In general there's not a way to use the name= parameter to
mean "exclude pages with the same name as the group".  For that
one probably needs a special list= parameter.  I suggest the
following template:

    (:template list=normal order=title:)
    (:if ! equal {=$Group} {=$Name}:)
    (:include {=$FullName} :)

Here the (:if ...:) directive takes care of excluding any
pages that are named the same as the group.
